It is against the law in the State of Montana to cause bodily harm to a partner or family member. It is even unlawful to cause reasonable apprehension of bodily harm. What this means is if you are being hit, and /or being threatened with harm, your partner is breaking the law!

Remember: no matter who you are, no matter what you do or don’t do, you never deserve to be physically or mentally abused.
